In this paper we derive tight lower bounds for the maximal and convex layers problems in the plane. Our lower bound proofs for the maxima problem and convex hull problem are simpler than those previously known. We also obtain an Ω(nlog n) lower bound for the maximal depth problem, and the convex depth problem, when the points are given in sorted order of their x-coordinates.
